GEMMY - JOHNNY 5 (2x12")


"Side A 'Johnny 5' makes use of a bleepy melody matched to slurring waves of bass and snappy double time electro drums. Side B 'Dolla Digital' is an anthem. Gemmy's catchy sing song vocoder melody contrasts with double speed 808 toms, a fierce bass kick and rough midrange synths to make an unusual and rather lovely psychedelic song. Side C 'Wata Down Sound' manages to do something that sounds completely unique within a fairly standard dubstep template, making good use of a couple of choice samples, it starts with a rude melody that sounds like a synth impersonating an electric guitar, before a lightning-like flickering midrange bassline drops in. The Final track on Side D 'Shanti Riddim' is supreme 16-bit steppers dub, updated with a tight grid of drums and sub bass, a bubbling 8-bit bass line and a melody that wouldn't be out of place on an old Sega game."
